The model also sits on new alloy wheels shod in sport tires. Power is offered by a tweaked 2.0-liter engine producing 370 horses and 460 Nm of torque for a 0-100 km/h sprint in 4,5 seconds and a top speed of 265 km/h.

The additional power was obtained thanks to a revised ECU unit and some other minor tweaks.
